    I will just go for Chespin ^^

    It looks sooooo cute :P

    I might be choosing Fennekin if the evo for Chespin sucks.
    And if the evo's for chespin and Fennekin both suck then.... I maybe will go for .... *cough* Froakie *cough*

    At the moment number 10 in double battles of the Netherlands.

    I'm gonna go with Froakie. There's just something about him. I don't know. And, I'm hoping his evolution will have magic mustache power. Plus, Chespin looks ridiculous and I'm sure his evolutions will too. Of course, I said the same thing about Oshawott, but ended up really growing on him and choosing him on White. So who knows.
    Hello, everybody.

    My Pangoro in the 6th gen remake of a 3rd gen game will be my future 63rd hundred. This is a great epiphany.

    I prefer low speed, they tend to have more defense. Slowbro's got what, like 20? It takes hits like no tomorrow.

    Give Chespin, Blastoise, Torterra, Lapras, Slowbro, and Slowking shell smash.

    But Slowbro and Slowking are too slow to utilize shell smash. Unless they still use up a turn to use trick room

    Yeah,it could have high defenses just not horrible speed.Shell Smash is kinda useless with a speed stat of 40.

    I thought lapras had pretty decent speed?

    So does Cloyster but they gave cloyster shell smash anyway.

    Also, give the early Cocoon Shell Smash also. So the moths can use shell smash and quiver dance. And let Beedrill use Shell smash.

    I hope that Chespin can learn Iron Defense. I was really disappointed that Torterra couldn't learn Iron defense especially if it has Shell Armor as its hidden ability.

    Yeah, hopefully. If he's steel, he'll most likely get it.

    I was reading some stuff about fox mythology and I found this:

    In Finland, the mesmerising aurora borealis or northern lights was believed to be the result of a fox running on the snow and sweeping its tail so that sparks fly off into the sky. The aurora borealis was also known as “revontulet”, or “fox fires”, referred to as magic lights back before its scientific origins were discovered.

    found this online while browsing X and Y stuff
    please read the whole thing before commenting ^_^

    People have speculated that, from the teaser of Gen 6, that it’s full evolution might be a Fire/Psychic type. If so, it would be the 3rd instance for this type combo, seen only in Darminitan and Victini.
    A reason it may also be a Fire/Psychic type would be from Japanese inspiration of Fox folklore, or Kitsune. They are depicted as having magical, mystical powers that relate to fire, illusion, and flight. In fact, the properties of Ninetails, Vulpix, Zoroark, and Zorua stem from these properties..
    Another Nintendo icon that was influenced by the Kistune (or rather Inari, a japanese God based off of foxes) was Fox McCloud, where these properties shine most in the SSB games.

    Next up is Chespin.




    Yeah I have no idea what the hell that is. I thought it was a chipmunk. I think its name is from Chestnut and spin (although Bulbapedia says Chestnut and Pin, perhaps meaning that it is a hedgehog or porcupine, but I don’t see it.) It reminds me of Oshawott though.




    Just like with Fennekin, from the trailer there have been speculation that this guy is a Grass/Dark type. Like with Fennekin, this again would be only the 3rd instance of a this type combo, sharing only with the Nuzleaf family and with Cacturne, which would be really cool.
    Chespin will also be breaking tradition, as every Grass starter prior to it will have been a reptile of some kind.

    Finally, we get down to Froakie.



    Obviously a mix of Frog and Croak. How the hell do people not like this? Frogs are ****ing awesome. They help eat our bugs and look so chill.




    As with the other 2, this one has been speculated to be Water/Fighting type. And guess what? Yup, if so it will be the 3rd instance of this type combination, joining Poliwrath and Keldeo. It would also be the 3rd family of frogs in the Pokemon series, with the Poliwag and Croagunk family (alright, technically a toad but who gives a ****). Game Freak really likes their fighting frogs.

    But so what? How is this revolutionary?
    Okay, well if the secondary types of the families of Fennekin, Chespin, and Froakie are Psychic, Dark, and Fighting respectively, then that means that there’s a reversal in type advantages, as Fennekin’s Psychic will be good against Froakie’s Fighting, Froakie’s Fighting will trump Chespin’s Dark, and Chespin’s Dark will trump Fennekin’s Psychic.
    I honestly thought that concept was really cool.

    I think Fennekin is going to be a Fire/Bug because it would be the third instance of that after Larvesta and Volcarona.
    LOOKING FOR A SHINY ONIX/STEELIX and SHINY SCYTHER/SCIZOR and SHINY SLOWPOKE. I HAVE POKEBANK CELEBI FOR TRADE AND SOME OTHER SHINIES. PM IF INTERESTED.

    I am all for one more Fire/Bug, but I am not sure how would Fennekin gain the Bug-type after an evolution... I mean, how the hell would a fox become a bug?

    How in the world does this "say" Bug-type in any shape or form?

    Sarcasm....lol, he's basically saying how viewing these patterns is useless since it doesn't really mean anything. Plus there may be many types that haven't gotten a third occurrence, so really, what's the point? (hence the bug/fire example).

    Also, Grass/Dark would technically be fourth since Nuzleaf/Shiftry/Cacturne makes up 3. So there's no real pattern.

    Yeah, I got the joke/sarcasm, but my question isn't directly related to Fennekin and is still valid: "How would a Pokémon gain the Bug-type after evolving?"
